An MBA in less than a year through the 11-Month MBA at the University of Colorado Denver Business School (CU Denver)

Business School, University of Colorado Denver


How the Schedule Works

The 11-Month MBA program is a cohort program. As a student, you will take all your classes on a predetermined schedule along with the rest of the students in your cohort. Each class meets twice per week. Classes meet Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Morning classes meet from 9:00 am - 11:40 am. Afternoon classes meet from 1:00 pm - 3:40 pm.

This approach allows you to form deep and lasting bonds with the other people in your class. Expect to work in teams in all of your 11-Month courses. The next 11-Month program will begin in August.
